Default The perfect phone

I'm still using my good old galaxy s3 right now and I'm asking myself why I can't find a replacement phone that suits my needs.. Every phone out there I have some sort of issue with. I like the LG g2, but I hate the buttons on the back. I like the nexus 5 but I hate that there isn't an SD card slot. Some of the newer samsung phones come close, but I don't want Knox or any of that garbage bs or a locked bootloader.

I guess my perfect phone would be a nexus 5 with an SD card slot and a slightly better camera. Or an LG g2 with buttons on the side instead of back. Sony makes some nice phones hardware wise but I hate the look of them. When will someone release a phone with

5-5.2 inch screen
SD card slot
13+ mp camera
Buttons on the side instead of the back
Unlocked bootloader

This is where that Lego concept of building phones would be nice. Hopefully Google stays on top of that and moves forward with it.

There is no such thing, that's why there are so much options in market.

I mean, I know you said you had the look of the Sony phones, but take the Xperia ZL:

5-5.2 inch screen?
SD Card slot?
13+ mp camera?
Buttons on side instead of back?
Unlocked bootloader?

All of the features you want are there in a phone like the Xperia ZL, and it doesn't look that bad. The phone you want has been released. Perhaps you should re-consider?

Lol I remember trying the demo of the zl when it was first released. It is a very nice phone and I think the only thing that held me back was the look of it and the price (at the time it was 750$ outright). I'll take a look again to see how much a used one goes for. Thanks

I was able to get a used one for about $285 on swappa. You can get it for $500 new straight from Sony. Good luck in your search!

The Z1 mini is actually more perfect in my opinion. Smaller size, but still has high-end specifications. The larger screen just makes it unhandy. It shouldn't replace the tablets.

Meh, it's a matter of preference and hand-size really. For what the OP listed as the "perfect phone", the ZL is a great match.

Personally, I'm a big fan of the Z Ultra as a tablet replacement. If only it were an inch larger, it would be the perfect 7in tablet.
